Organizers of the annual Great Bend Farm and Ranch Expo say the event is expected to draw more than 500 exhibitors and thousands of spectators.
The exhibition runs Wednesday through Friday at the Great Bend Expo complex, located about 2 miles west of the city. Admission is free.
This is the third year for the expo. Some of the new attractions include demonstrations on low-stress cattle handling and horse training.
Speakers from Kansas State University will discuss their research. Demonstrations of combines and sprayers are also planned.
